On last night's Reporting Scotland, they did a follow-up to the story discussed in this thread, talking about the increased interest in foraging for wild mushrooms and the attendant risks. One of the experts they had on said that "there are 13 poisonous mushrooms in the UK you must know before you go foraging" (or words to that affect). So, naturally, I started trying to figure out which ones he was meaning. I can't get anywhere near 13 (off the top of my head, I'm sure I could if I were to hit the books), so I was wondering if we could put our heads together and come up with a list... The first 4 are (hopefully) obvious: 1. Death Cap (Amanita phalloides) 2. Destroying Angel (Amanita virosa) 3. Panther Cap (Amanita pantherina) 4. Fly Agaric (Amanita muscaria) Next on my list would probably be a couple I hadn't heard of until the above linked thread: 5. Deadly Webcap (Cortinarius rubellus) 6. Fools Webcap (Cortinarius orellanus) (I can't find a good link for this one - anybody got one?) Beyond that, I'm not sure what should be on a list of poisonous mushrooms "you must know". Any suggestions for the rest of the list?
